Built In Bunk Beds

For parents who want the bunk bed of their kids to be more sturdy, this is a great option for you.

For this kind of bunk bed, the maker needs to have a huge frame where the bunks are installed. In this plan, it’s as if the bunk bed is installed in a huge cabinet.

Since the bunks are “built as a whole”, there is a remote chance that the whole bed will tumble due to rough play. After all, the whole bed is heavy and wouldn’t budge easily.

Climbing to the top bunk is also not a problem, as the ladder is similar to what you can find in houses. This will give you the assurance that even if that bunk will be occupied by a younger child, there is a lower risk that the kid will miss a step and fall.
